I don’t use cauliflower much. After some digging around, I found that people with thyroid issues (hypothyroidism) should try to steer clear of foods from the brassica family (kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, etc), especially raw. And they are a little tough to digest. But, they do work nicely in some things (curries!!!) and can add a lovely texture. And with the colder weather, I’ve been craving more comfort food, like soups.
Very warming and comforting. Great for making on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or can be quickly thrown together after a busy, hectic day. It’s basically 5 ingredients and can come together in 20 minutes or less.
Creamy Dreamy Cheezy Cauliflower Soup (serves 4-6)
1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces, steamed
1/2 cup of cashews (soaked 4+ hours)
1 cup of navy beans
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 cups of of vegetable broth
a sprinkle of sea salt & pepper
Throw your steamed cauliflower and remaining ingredients into a high speed blender. I had to do this in 2 batches as my blender wasn’t big enough, I just did half & half. Blend and then warm on the stove.
